I heard he got killed today while he was on a boat at Current River! Was wondering what happened and if anyone else has heard of any more info or how the family is doing.

Im Josh Burson's sister and if anyone knew him you would agree that is was the most generous person ever and would give you his last dollar or the shirt off his back if he knew it would help. So from here on out i ask you for his little boy that you never let a day go by that you dont think about him and how his life touched you if you see his son you tell him what a wonderful father he had and you share a story of him that you know we want his memory to go on he might not be here in person but we will live the rest of our lives like he is here keep your stories of him alive and never let his little boy feel like even tho he isnt here that he still knew what his dad was like.

I graduated with Josh and I have not seen him since High School but I wanted you and your family to know you all are in my prayers. Kelly called me yesterday with the news and I am so sad to hear what has happened...

You can go to kfvs12.com & there is a link to the water patrol's report & it gives the names of all the people in both of the boats. I feel really bad for these families so let's keep them in our prayers. There was 2 other local guys in the boat with Josh.
